GoodGymers - This is your life..... on a roll

Mon 29 Nov
Report written by JULIA GLEESON

Just kidding around paint walling

On a freezing cold evening In Worthing we met up at one of our favourite task venues at Kamelia Kids day care centre. The team were slightly depleted tonight for various reasons but it was a warm welcome all round for my trusty team that did manage to come along tonight.

Drum roll .....

Rosalind Gillybean Paul Barbara Paula John

As ever, we had a warm welcome from Andy who is the caretaker there and basically is the glue that holds the whole place together. Andy showed us the area to be painted and gave us all the tools. There was a slightly dodgy moment where the white paint was mistakenly magnolia but Andy asked to continue covering over the yellow paint with the magnolia until next week when we can go over it again with brilliant white.

I do hope you enjoy the photos today ! We have Paul and John with their extending rollers, Barbara and Paula looking rather mischievous and Ros and Gill looking rather glam.......

1 short hour later we washed the brushes and scrubbed the drip marks on the carpet (!) before heading out for a group photo.... and thats when the fun really started !

200

Unbeknown to me John had made me a 'This is your Worthing GoodGym life' red book and filled it with photo's, memories and messages from my team. Its absolutely wonderful. I love it :) Rather unusually for me I was speechless when it was given to me by Andy ( shock , horror! ) If anyone would like to borrow this iconic item you are more than welcome to. Its a great read and momento of my journey with GoodGym and something that I will always treasure. Thank you to all for your lovely words and special mention to Mrs R who rallied the troops!

See you all next week for round 2 of paint walling :)

Raking it in

Mon 22 Nov
Report written by JULIA GLEESON

*F A B- U - L O U S turnout - Thank you ! *

What a wonderful turn out it was tonight. Honestly it was brilliant!

We had received an SOS call for help from Gwenn in the parks department to help with some raking and fine, tooth comb weeding of an area in the park which has been lined up for some 'Prarie planting' ( perennial ornamental late flowering grasses)

On a very chilly but, thankfully, still evening I feel i need to give a big shout out to each and everyone of ALL the team tonight.

Round of applause

  • Rosalind So good to see you every week now that you are off shifts :)
  • Duncan Thanks so much for making the effort to get to every task you can and for bringing GG to Worthing!
  • Belinda Thank you for coming out in the cold with your knees especially with all the kneeling!
  • Sue Thanks for pulling yourself out of your lovely warm flat!
  • Anne Always bringing the smile and the hard work. Thank you for always just doing it!

  • Barbara Well done for finding your way from Brooklands to us !

Wrapping it up

Under the watchful eyes of Gwenn and Erin from the town hall we got down to the business of precision weeding and trying to stop any pesky weeds growing again! This involved raking and sifting and bagging the debris.

When it got cold we went off round the park for laps of either running or walking until the cold got a bit too much and 1 hour later we called it a day.

After loading the rakes into the car having a final photo and giving promises to return we all headed off in different directions ( no burgers tonight! )

Raking and Weeding

Mon 22 Nov 18:00 pm
Splashpoint Leisure Centre, 60 Brighton Rd,, Worthing,, BN11 2EN
Helping a local community park look great for the winter

Meet at SPLC at 17:45 or at the task at 18:00.

The task is situated just inside the park accessed from the hospital side off Chesswood Road . We had an SOS to help with this from The Parks Dept at the council. It would be great to help them to prepare the 2 large beds for planting ( which has already been delayed due to too many weeds growing! )

Im planning a 1 hour effort followed by optional fitness. head torches or any form of illumination essential. Also please bring gloves too

Report written by JULIA GLEESON

On a bright and breezy evening in Sunny Worthing it was great that 8 of us met up at Anchor Gardens to give some pro active support to this seafront community garden.

It was a real milestone of a week with It being Belinda 200 Good Deed with us. What an epic achievement Belinda! many congratulations. It was also Ricky2nd year anniversary with us - That time has flown by. many congratulations Ricky, your running has been an incredibly successful journey since you joined us and its been great to have you as part of the GG team :)

Our host Freda, asked that we cut back a large hedge so JohnDuncanStephen and Jemmie set about the task in hand.

BelindaTamsinRosalind and Rickywere really busy weeding and sorting out the large overgrown flowerbed.

Tamsin, Jemmie, Ros and I headed off for a little bit of fun running followed by having bit of a play on the outdoor gym equipment. Steve joined us for some pull ups ( Impresssive!! )

We had a chat about a social in a 2 weeks time and settled on a meal at Chipwick after our beach clean. I will take numbers and book :)

Same time next week - I will be bringing all the light I can summon up as the clocks will have changed by then. If you have a head torch please do bring it along with your gloves.

In a week where GG Area Activators are feeling a bit glum I'm feeling how lucky we are to have the loyal, amazing, supportive, happy group that we have in Worthing

On a day where we we were dodging showers and wondering hour upon hour if the task would go ahead, it was on a wing and a prayer ( Plus Duncans presence ) that we all arrived for this painting task tonight.

Fresh from the Great South Run Barbara,BelindaJohn and Duncan all tuned up turned up to tonights task. Huge kudos to these intrepid athletes and thank you so much for turning out tonight today as well.

2 walls and 1 ceiling later and we were all done.

With the the rain lashing down and some sore legs nobody volunteered to run so we called it a day ....
